#1190 closed Defect (Works for Me)

Colloquy goes into a state where one can't type anything

Reported by: shreevatsa Owned by: timothy
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version:
Severity: Blocker Keywords:


I often get into a situation where I can't type anything in Colloquy windows. I am not sure how exactly to reproduce it, but here is something that seems to mostly work:

  • Type something (in some channel, not in the server console or other windows)
  • Hit Cmd-A (for Select All)
  • Hit Option-Delete (Backspace) [maybe Cmd-Delete also works here?]
  • Hit Cmd-Z (for Undo)

Now, if everything goes (not) well, you can't type anything at all in any of the chat windows or the server console. You *can* paste from other windows. You *cannot* hit Return to send the pasted message. You *can* hit Cmd-J (for example) and type channel names in the window that pops up. You just can't type in any chat windows.

Minimising and restoring Colloquy does not help; the only way out is to restart Colloquy.

Today I deleted something and hit Cmd-Z, and Colloquy crashed.

  • The Cmd-A seems unnecessary, even deleting something simply with Option-Delete (and then hitting Cmd-Z) seems to screw it up sometimes.
  • Option-Delete seems unnecessary too; deleting something with just Delete (and then hitting Cmd-Z) seems to screw it up too.

Can I turn on debugging or something to see what's happening? It is not perfectly reproducible but happens fairly frequently.

I can also reproduce this by using Ctrl-K and then Cmd-Z.

Basically, clearing text (in whatever way) and doing Undo causes this annoying bug. I wish I could help debug it, but I don't know how to...
